quote . the fact of the matter is the united states is much better positioned in terms of our foreign security than we have been in a long time. osama bin laden is dead. we have our troops out of iraq. our troops are coming out of afghanistan. these are things that are important to the united states. secondly, there have been four million new jobs added since barack obama took over the presidency. now there's been some loss in the public sector, so the tea party people ought to be happy. in fact, government is shrinking. i think we've made some real progress. we have two thoughtful, sensible justices on the supreme court, no more right wing extreme people. we have a medical system, while more complex than i think would have been desirable, every person under 26 whose parents have health insurance now have health insurance. and in two years' time, assuming the court doesn't change this around, people are not going to be exclude clueded from having insurance because they're sick. really progress has been made both in terms of american security, in terms of bringing our troops home, in t

criticism, quite honestly of mitt romney's only thesis for being president of the united states, that he is some kind of economic savior. he is very good at making money for his partners. he is not so good at creating jobs. we have seen that time and time again, and i think the american people and voters deserve to understand what mitt romney means when he says he has the keys to the being economic savior. >> schieffer: one other, one of the refreshing changes when the president was elected, he talked about hope and change. whatever happened to hope and change? now it seems he is just coming right out of the box with these old-fashioned negative ads, all campaigns seem to think or are the basis of all campaigns. >> bob there is going to be a choice in this election, mitt romney has been running for president for many years of his life, and has been very critical of this president's tenure of this president's policies, and we are certainly happy to talk a little bit about mitt romney and his record of not creating jobs in virtually every step of his life. that is what this campaign is goi

president of the united states to recognize the equality and dignity of our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters and friends and neighbors. that's what's important, not what was right or wrong or popular or unpopular politically. i don't know about politics. i do know about human rights and constitutional rights, and on that basis, i think the president did the right thing. i'm very glad he did it. >> schieffer: would argue with you on one thing. i think you do know about politics, but we won't go into that right now. governor patrick, many religious voteres, including many black voters are, opposed to same-sex marriage. is this issue going to threaten and hurt the president politically? >> i don't think so, bob. and i want to-- i want to thank ted for his clear and principled on this issue, and it's consistent with the president's clear and principled position on the issue because it's about convictions. it's not about politics. you know, i dealt with something similar in massachusetts when i was running the first time and dealing with black clerget and point i made to them is the s

were the president of the united states i would put a full court press on to make sure assad goes sooner rather than later. >> schieffer: let me talk to tom. you mentioned the arab spring, and i know you're just back from cairo. give me your thoughts on what senator graham said. >> back from lebanon and jordan. yeah, i certainly think that what you're seeing today in the arab spring and senator graham alluded to it and i think at its core is what he said. it is an upsurge of arab youth. seeing how everyone else it is living in the world and it was like a volcanic eruption. here's what we see a year and a half later. the eruption was enough to blow the lid open but not off. in egypt the lid is still there. the army, part of the old regime is still there. into the opening came the most organized political party, the muslim brotherhood. that's what you're seeing playing playout in. >> egypt, the struggle between the democratic youth aspiring for a different future and this very old political movement. what's missing in the middle east that europe had, europe had a model, the european

to move forward. that's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states! ( cheers and applause ) >> schieffer: the presidents everywhere from the battleground political states to afghanistan, where he marked the one-year anniversary of the death of osama bin laden. mitt romney said fine, but-- >> and the idea to try to politicize this ask to say, "oh, i, president obama, would have done it one way, mitt romney would have done it another" is really disappointing. >> schieffer: with romney all but certain to get the republican nomination, former rival michele bachmann, settled her differences and endorsed him. >> he not only can win. he will win. he will be the president. >> schieffer: no endorsement yet from newt gingrich but he finally quit. >> i thought, frankly, my role providing material for "saturday night live" was helpful alive and we will talk. where the republicans go from here, and the democratics' side from new york senator chuck schumer, and former presidential candidate and one-time chairman of the democratic party, howard dean. we'll talk with a leadin
